"Movie is OK, but DVD quality is practically non-existent, sound is just bad."
An average crime motion picture

"An armored car holdup goes bad, and the Lee Marvin character is on the run. He ends up hiding on the farm of a dysfunctional family. Everyone wants the bag of money he grabbed during the holdup. The plot seems to be more about the family than about the robbery. The motion picture has sex (there are scenes in a bordello, including bondage and discipline; bedroom scenes; one scene in the kitchen); significant nudity ranging from female nudest campers to a boy getting his butt whipped; and a large amount of violence. I would personally give it an R rating or, in the other rating system, AO for adult only. I am looking at the uncut French version. You will obviously not see this on TV, at least not in the United States.

I would agree with a previous reviewer that the sound quality is bad. Perhaps that is the result of a poor job dubbing in English for a French film. It was necessary to strain to hear some of the dialogue, which made it difficult at times to follow the story. It is an obviously older Lee Marvin in the motion picture, and it is not one of his better acting assignments.

It is hard to say who actually ends up with the money. Many characters end up dead, and some murders are conveniently blamed on the robber."

"This film is unbelievably bad, a product/relic of the French film industry at its low water mark in the early 1980's. Lee Marvin, in his penultimate role, appears to be drunk and nearly dead throughout most of the film. Tina Louise (yes, "Ginger" from Gilligan's Island and still sporting the same hair style) is cast at Lee Marvin's "moll", presumably because the producer/director found them in the same nursing home. The sound is terrible, the dubbing is unintentionally hilarious and the film is presented in full screen (pan and scan).

So why did I give it three stars? This is a "party" film, to be enjoyed while inebriated with your friends. That and the fact that Lee Marvin was a better "action hero" with one foot in the grave than most of today's crop of wannabes.

"A non-stop action thriller starring Lee Marvin and Tina Louise. A ruthless fugitive on the run and carrying several million dollars hides out in the home of a farm family. The tables soon turn when the family becomes more criminally depraved than he is and begins to terrorize him instead.Starring Lee Marvin, Tina Louise101 minutes/Action/Color"
